1. What is stainless steel toggle latch?


Stainless steel toggle latch is a kind of buckle or latch used in ship, communication and industrial equipment. There are many kinds and different materials.


2. Matters needing attention in the use of stainless steel toggle latch:


(1) The size of the toggle latch should be suitable for the thickness of the wire rope. The inner net distance of the U-ring is 1-3 mm larger than the diameter of the wire rope. The net distance is too large to tighten the rope. (toggle latch lock)


(2) When using, tighten the U-shaped bolt until the wire rope is flattened by about 1/3. Because the wire rope is deformed after being subjected to force, the stainless steel latch should be tightened for the second time after the wire rope is subjected to force to ensure the joint is firm. If it is necessary to check whether the stainless steel unloading slips after the wire rope is stressed, a safety rope clamp can be attached to it. The stainless steel toggle latch is installed about 500 mm away from the last rope clip. The rope head is released into a safe bend and then clamped with the main rope. If the clip slips, the safety bend will be straightened, so that it is easy to find and reinforce at any time. (wooden box latch)


(3) The arrangement spacing between stainless steel latch is generally about 6-8 times the diameter of the wire rope. The rope clamps should be arranged in a straight line. The U-ring part should be clamped on one side of the rope head, and the pressing plate should be placed on the side of the main rope.


(4) The fixing method of the end of the wire rope: there are two kinds of knots: single knot and double knot.


Single set knot, also known as cross knot, is used for both ends of wire rope or fixed rope.


Double knot, also known as double cross knot and symmetrical knot, is used at both ends of wire rope, and can also be used for rope end fixing (steel box buckle).


Use of stainless steel toggle latch:


It can be used on various engineering lifting machines, metallurgical mining equipment, oil field derrick, port railway loading and unloading, forestry machinery, electric power equipment, aviation and sea, land transportation, engineering rescue, salvaging sunken ships, lifting, lifting and traction rigging of factories and mining enterprises.

Fourth, the characteristics of toggle latch:


It has the same strength as steel wire rope, safe use, beautiful appearance, smooth transition, large safety load in hoisting operation, can resist impact load and long service life. (with padlock latch)
